Just recently I had an adult patient come up to me after her treatment and gave me a big Hug. She said she was so happy that she had undergone her Orthodontic treatment, and said it was life changing.
This kind of took me by surprise a bit and asked her how it was life changing. She just smiled and began to tell me about how awkward she had always been when around new people. She related that she had been out to a party and met and very nice man who she found fascinating. They started a conversation. The entire time she would only speak with her hand partially covering her mouth as to not show in her mind her less than attractive smile. But unfortunately she found she slipped a bit and exposed her smile which made her very self conscience. As the party wound down they exchanged numbers and she was told he would soon be in contact, but it never happened.
At that point in her story I could see a look of sorrow fall upon her face and her new found smile disappeared temporarily. She stated that she felt it was her smile and her lack of self confidence of it was holding her back. That’s when she started her quest for a better smile. After talking to me and my staff she decided she was ready for the transformation and after a short 18 months of treatment she was ready for the world. As it happens she had attended another party at which the man whom she met before was present. She approached him with her newly acquired smile and they hit if off immediately, and they are still together. I found this so gratifying that her improved smile gave her the confidence that she seemed to lack earlier and that was what “changed her life”. The moral to this story is simple. Take the bull by the horns and don’t wait but change your life today. If we can be part of your transformation please call for a complimentary exam and kick start your life.
